CardSpace AFDS 2.0, Identity Lab and WS-SX
A few good things happened to CardSpace this week ( other then the release of .NET 3.5 ), and I order then according to importance
Vibro.NET talked about ADFS "2" at TechEd Europe ( which was in Barcelona )
The Microsoft CardSpace gang opened a new http://www.federatedidentity.net/ which you can read about here: Identity Lab Goes Live
The Microsoft CardSpace gang announced about CardSpace support for Oasis WS-SX standards
For me the most importent one is the first, because ADFS 2.0 ( ADFS = Active Directory Federated Server ) would support CardSpace as part of it's infrastructure. The first time...

Single sign-on (SSO) is a method of access control that enables a user to authenticate once and gain access to the resources of multiple software systems.

I'm not promising )It seemed, as I have expected, that the...

Mike Jones has seemed to take two things and put together:
The Information Card new Logo
The HTML Kit which he has built
... and put them together, so here's the result

Richard Turner has announced "Announcing the Information Card Icon". Due to the fact that currently OpenID is also considered an Information Card, you should take the note into consideration "This icon is NOT a Windows CardSpace Icon. It's an icon to symbolize that a site or application supports Information Cards, regardless of the identity selector used to submit an Information Token associated with any Information Card. ".

Kim Cameron's Identity Weblog just published that Apple's iTunes is embedding some identifying information in songs purchased from iTunes, including the name of the customer and his or her e-mail address in his iTunes and Identity-Based Digital Rights Management post. Contrary to that, Microsoft and Nokia agree music DRM a long time a go , in 2005. DRM stands for "Digital Rights Management" and is the way in which nokia has embeded into it's platform the distibution of downloaded and purchased media through known sharing possibilities for example BlueTooth(tm).
